Last week's link-up had us all sharing what our typical day is like. It was so much fun getting to know each other in that way! Our lives are so full that it is any wonder we have time for blogging too, but good thing we make the time! Otherwise, how would we all know one another? :)
Today's prompt has us examining our vices:
We can't wait to see what everyone writes about this one! Happy writing!!
Don't forget, you have five days to link-up! If you have not prepared a post for today, feel free to join us tomorrow or in a few days. We'd love to see what you come up with!
P.S. Have you joined the Write or Die Book Club yet? It's a quarterly book club focused on books about writing, creativity, inspiration, etc. We hope you'll join us! We begin reading Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott today! Click on the image below to join :)
My first reaction was to think, "I'm not guilty of any of these!!" But the truth is, I'm sure I've been guilty of all of the 7 deadly sins at some point in my life.
But which of them am I most guilty?
I don't like to think of myself as an angry person. And I think that most people who know me wouldn't have chosen wrath for me. But my smile and easygoing nature and humor hide a lot.
It's an old, deep-seated anger, really. One that I should have let go of a long time ago, but I just can't. It permeates my bones, it's a part of my DNA. There are days when I don't think about it. Days when I feel like I can finally put it behind me. But it always comes back. My own little boomerang of fury.
I don't always necessarily think that anger is a bad thing. Anger can fuel you. Anger can bring about change. Anger has shown me who I do not want to be. And who I do. How I want to live my life and treat others.
But there is a point when wrath crosses the line into something toxic. I don't feel like I have crossed that line. I hope I never do. But there are days when it becomes a burden.
"Anger is just anger. It isn't good. It isn't bad. It just is. What you do with it is what matters. It's like anything else. You can use it to build or to destroy. You just have to make the choice." -Jim Butcher
I choose to not let it destroy me, but to serve as a reminder. Of things that have been and things that will be.
